Alfalfa From Seed to Feed is the title of an alfalfa informational meeting sponsored by the University of Minnesota Extension Service. A team of University of Minnesota, SDSU, USDA-ARS, and Morris Experiment Station specialists will be the speakers at these alfalfa meetings. The speakers will be agronomy specialists Vance Owens, Greg Cuomo, Craig Sheaffer, Joe Pikul, Kirby Hettver and entomologist, Eric Burkness. They will discuss almost all aspects of raising alfalfa from seed selection to feed quality testing. The topics hey will present include: * What is involved in variety selection? (Multi-leaf, leafhoppers resistance, disease resistance and winter hardiness) * What does it take to grow alfalfa? (Fertilizer, weed control, seed placement, direct seeding Vs nurse crop) * When should alfalfa be cut for maximum quality? (Timing of the first cutting, cutting intervals and last fall cutting) * What aids are available for :3 MUCH MONTH AT THE END OF YOUR MONEY?? ,.-'1"[ G[N[2ATIOIq (:AD. - - nltUt IBM,aNN. . ex.r,.ClSE PEPOGRM.GeANDPA DOES tT EVER TH,/t E GETS "ff.IOr[ LIITLr ,.1 ..._.W_I N D OW ENVELOPES."

A couple of them are: DISTINCT is a postemergence broadleaf corn herbicide likely to receive EPA approval this spring. Marketed by BASF Agricultural Products, this formulation combines dicamba (Banvel/Clarity) with an auxin transport inhibitor, diflufenzopyr, which enhances dicamba's activity. Diflufenzopyr allows lower rates and less risk of crop injury than with dicamba applications alone. Farmers may apply the product in corn up to 24 inches tall, but optimal results will most likely occur when corn is between 4 and 10 inches tall. In South Dakota field trials, Distinct pertormed better on Canada thistle and leafy spurge than straight dicamba applications. If using less dicamba is an issue, this product will have a good fit. Field trials in North Dakota show improved weed control across the board, especially on perennials (compared to dicamba alone). It has a very wide broad-leaf weed spectrum. Depending on conditions, it ranges from weak to strong activity on grasses. Pricing should be fairly reasonable. BALANCE is a new preplant and preplant-incorporated corn herbicide manufactured by Rhone Poulenc. However, due to the product's mobile and persistent nature, the EPA prohibits its use in Minnesota because of groundwater concerns. Recently, the EPA approved conditional registration for Balance in 16 states, including North and South Dakota. In North Dakota, Balance is going to have an excellent fit, because we finally have a pre-emergence herbicide that should work under a drier climate. It is good on both grasses and broadleaves, so now we have another well-rounded herbicide to add to our arsenal. Farmers who battle koch|a, wild oat, foxtail resistant weeds should especially find this herbicide helpful. Balance does have some weaknesses. Under less than ideal conditions, yellow foxtail and wild oats will probably show through. It is also weak on large-seeded broadleaf weeds like cocklebur, sunflower and giant ragweed, and it has no control of wild buckwheat. In South Dakota, the product should fit well in a no-till burndown program. It also offers stronger actw]ty on woolly cupgrass and wild proso millet compared to other existing soil applied treatments. Bellingham Elem. students catching "Fitness Fever" The students at Bellingham Public School are catching "Fitness Fever" in February. Fitness Fever is a statewide month- long program for students in grades K- 6 to support and encourage a lifetime of healthy behaviors in children and their families, including daily physical activity, good nutrition and safety. Fitness Fever is a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MN BluePrint for Health community partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health, Minnesota Department of Children, Families and Learning, Minnesota Service Cooperatives and other sup- porters. The Fitness Fever challenge is to encourage students, at school and at home, to increase physical activity and eat more fruits and vegetables. Students will be asked to set personal activity and nutrition goals and then have a teacher or family member review the progress toward the goals. Each student will track their progress in a student passport/journal, which is a weekly goal-oriented fitness planner. The Fitness Fever program in the school is being coordinated by the Bellingham School physical education and food and nutrition staff. Each student will also receive Rufus Radish seed packets to encour- age kids to grow...and eat vegetables. The kids will plant their radish seeds in school. They will also receive rib- bons and certificates of participation, and a Family Resource Guide with information on nutrition, food, exer- cise and a whole section on gardening with children. More information on Fitness Fever can be found on the Internet at www.fitnessfever.com. The purpose of Fitness Fever is to support and encourage a lifetime of healthy behaviors in children and their families, including daily physical activity, good nutrition and safety. Fitness Fever is designed to assist children in developing positive atti- tudes about physical activity and gen- eral awareness that physical activity is both fun and good for health. Fitness Fever is not about competition between children, but about participa- tion by all children. Children partici- pating at any level of ability are win- nersl LIMITED AREA III00Sl000 I00Slllll M;ENT REPORT.... Attention: OHS Seniors!!!! Can you name the Listening Lady??

Remember, babies do not mean to upset you. They are too young to understand and will cry more if treated roughly. Rough treatment, even in a playful way, can permanently injure softly- formed bones and internal organs. Just the same, everyone has a stress point beyond which rational, calm and loving activities are impossible. If your baby has been crying a lot, try these tips for coping with crying baby: 1) Rock - Rocking a baby usually helps to quiet her. 2) Swaddle - Wrap your baby in a warm, soft blanket with just his head uncovered. 3) Change clothes - Try to figure out if your baby is dressed too warmly or not warmly enough. Adjust clothing to make him more comfortable 4) Burp - Try gently burping your baby to see if an air bubble in her stomach is making her uncomfortable. If she burps, try feeding her again. 5) Cure diaper rash - Leave his diaper off and wrap him loosely in a blanket. Powder his bottom with cornstarch instead of baby powder. If diaper rash is severe, check with your doctor. 6) Share shifts -Mom and Dad can take turns. For example, Morn has the 9 to 10 p.m.shift; Dad the 10 to 11 p.m. shift. 7) Try sounds - Record your baby's cries and play them back to her. Some babies stop crying to listen to themselves! Or try soft music. Or hold her near the washer or dryer; some developmentalists report that some babies find the sound and motion calming. 8) Swap baby for an IOU - Find a neighbor or friend 'to watch your baby so you can get out and relax. Later, when your baby has settled down, you can watch the neighbor's kid 9) Hire a caregiver - Find responsible sitters that you trust. Although costly, it may be well worth the freedom and peace of mind. 10) Take a 20-10 break - If your baby has been crying nonstop, put him in the crib. Check to make sure nothing is wrong physically and then relax for 10 minutes. If your baby continues to cry, rock or carry him for 20 minutes and then repeat the 10 minute break. 11 ) Check with your doctor - An allergy to formula can make babies cry. If you have any doubts, it doesn't hurt to ask a doctor. 12) Hang in there - The first three months are the hardest. If you meet your baby's needs now, chances are he will have settled down by the fourth month.

A couple of them are: DISTINCT is a postemergence broadleaf corn herbicide likely to receive EPA approval this spring. Marketed by BASF Agricultural Products, this formulation combines dicamba (Banvel/Clarity) with an auxin transport inhibitor, diflufenzopyr, which enhances dicamba's activity. Diflufenzopyr allows lower rates and less risk of crop injury than with dicamba applications alone. Farmers may apply the product in corn up to 24 inches tall, but optimal results will most likely occur when corn is between 4 and 10 inches tall. In South Dakota field trials, Distinct pertormed better on Canada thistle and leafy spurge than straight dicamba applications. If using less dicamba is an issue, this product will have a good fit. Field trials in North Dakota show improved weed control across the board, especially on perennials (compared to dicamba alone). It has a very wide broad-leaf weed spectrum. Depending on conditions, it ranges from weak to strong activity on grasses. Pricing should be fairly reasonable. BALANCE is a new preplant and preplant-incorporated corn herbicide manufactured by Rhone Poulenc. However, due to the product's mobile and persistent nature, the EPA prohibits its use in Minnesota because of groundwater concerns. Recently, the EPA approved conditional registration for Balance in 16 states, including North and South Dakota. In North Dakota, Balance is going to have an excellent fit, because we finally have a pre-emergence herbicide that should work under a drier climate. It is good on both grasses and broadleaves, so now we have another well-rounded herbicide to add to our arsenal. Farmers who battle koch|a, wild oat, foxtail resistant weeds should especially find this herbicide helpful. Balance does have some weaknesses. Under less than ideal conditions, yellow foxtail and wild oats will probably show through. It is also weak on large-seeded broadleaf weeds like cocklebur, sunflower and giant ragweed, and it has no control of wild buckwheat. In South Dakota, the product should fit well in a no-till burndown program. It also offers stronger actw]ty on woolly cupgrass and wild proso millet compared to other existing soil applied treatments. Bellingham Elem. students catching "Fitness Fever" The students at Bellingham Public School are catching "Fitness Fever" in February. Fitness Fever is a statewide month- long program for students in grades K- 6 to support and encourage a lifetime of healthy behaviors in children and their families, including daily physical activity, good nutrition and safety. Fitness Fever is a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MN BluePrint for Health community partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health, Minnesota Department of Children, Families and Learning, Minnesota Service Cooperatives and other sup- porters. The Fitness Fever challenge is to encourage students, at school and at home, to increase physical activity and eat more fruits and vegetables. Students will be asked to set personal activity and nutrition goals and then have a teacher or family member review the progress toward the goals. Each student will track their progress in a student passport/journal, which is a weekly goal-oriented fitness planner. The Fitness Fever program in the school is being coordinated by the Bellingham School physical education and food and nutrition staff. Each student will also receive Rufus Radish seed packets to encour- age kids to grow...and eat vegetables. The kids will plant their radish seeds in school. They will also receive rib- bons and certificates of participation, and a Family Resource Guide with information on nutrition, food, exer- cise and a whole section on gardening with children. More information on Fitness Fever can be found on the Internet at www.fitnessfever.com. The purpose of Fitness Fever is to support and encourage a lifetime of healthy behaviors in children and their families, including daily physical activity, good nutrition and safety. Fitness Fever is designed to assist children in developing positive atti- tudes about physical activity and gen- eral awareness that physical activity is both fun and good for health.

Remember, babies do not mean to upset you. They are too young to understand and will cry more if treated roughly. Rough treatment, even in a playful way, can permanently injure softly- formed bones and internal organs. Just the same, everyone has a stress point beyond which rational, calm and loving activities are impossible. If your baby has been crying a lot, try these tips for coping with crying baby: 1) Rock - Rocking a baby usually helps to quiet her. 2) Swaddle - Wrap your baby in a warm, soft blanket with just his head uncovered. 3) Change clothes - Try to figure out if your baby is dressed too warmly or not warmly enough. Adjust clothing to make him more comfortable 4) Burp - Try gently burping your baby to see if an air bubble in her stomach is making her uncomfortable. If she burps, try feeding her again. 5) Cure diaper rash - Leave his diaper off and wrap him loosely in a blanket. Powder his bottom with cornstarch instead of baby powder. If diaper rash is severe, check with your doctor. 6) Share shifts -Mom and Dad can take turns. For example, Morn has the 9 to 10 p.m.shift; Dad the 10 to 11 p.m. shift. 7) Try sounds - Record your baby's cries and play them back to her. Some babies stop crying to listen to themselves! Or try soft music. Or hold her near the washer or dryer; some developmentalists report that some babies find the sound and motion calming. 8) Swap baby for an IOU - Find a neighbor or friend 'to watch your baby so you can get out and relax. Later, when your baby has settled down, you can watch the neighbor's kid 9) Hire a caregiver - Find responsible sitters that you trust. Although costly, it may be well worth the freedom and peace of mind. 10) Take a 20-10 break - If your baby has been crying nonstop, put him in the crib. Check to make sure nothing is wrong physically and then relax for 10 minutes. If your baby continues to cry, rock or carry him for 20 minutes and then repeat the 10 minute break. 11 ) Check with your doctor - An allergy to formula can make babies cry. If you have any doubts, it doesn't hurt to ask a doctor. 12) Hang in there - The first three months are the hardest. If you meet your baby's needs now, chances are he will have settled down by the fourth month.
